cementmaker dipped to restructure its european operations. they could put charges of over 500 million francs. carolin has more out for us out of europe. >> hey, ross. let's take a look at the market reaction. initially, the reaction on the markets is quite subdued. now accelerating its declines, off by 7.1%, the second worst decliner on the market. let's come back to holcim. it is responding to the sluggish construction environment in europe and that is why it's restructuring its european operations. it is taking a $440 charge on write-offs for property plan and equipment. on top of that, it sees an additional 1100 million swiss francs in costs for the fourth quarter. so the overall hit to the fourth quarter will be 500 million swiss francs. it does say that the rebound will save around $120 million swiss francs annually. but overall, analysts are surprised about the size of the additional write-offs that will be booked in the fourth quarter. but holcim is trying to reassure investors this morning, saying there is still potential for a dividend payout for 2012 but that decision will be taken
firmer agt the dollar. this is bank of france governor says the city of london should no longer be the main trading hub. is he whis links in tling in th is it doable? >> i think if you look at the figures they speak for themselves. at the moment 40% is actually this london compared to maybe 3% in france, 2% in germany, and it's not just that london dominates, but that the long term trend is actually away from france and germany and towards london. so a tough challenge for the ecb. >> so even if eurozone banks -- i suppose can they lean on eurozone banks to move their trading floors to paris and frankfurt. i don't know. >> that's true. and the fact is with currency, it's not just about trading the euro, it's what you trade on the other side, as well. london is the center for fx liquidity. that's the way it is. so the direction of things is not favoring anybody moving their trading floors towards mainland europe. >> fair enough. so what happens to the euro? we're sort of near a range high here at the moment. and how much problems are there going to the at 1.3050? >> it's an intere

roughly speaking in the likes of italy and france and actually grew for germany. then in q4, it seems that there is a greater degree of destocking i think, materializing. i think that is going to lead to some weakness on the industrial production side and it does appear that the austerity is very much perceived by household and by service sector companies. and that explains this relatively soft data. it's a sign that really we are still in a period of multi-year major fiscal entrenchment and at the same time, we have a very cautious perspective towards taking on debt. both by the suppliers and the demanders of that debt. >> julian, very briefly, will we see more qe? will we see any more next year or not? >> well, it will depend, i think, on how things develop. on our baseline forecast, the answer to that would be no because we are looking for recovery coming through really reasonably significantly from the first quarter of next year with .4% quarter on quarter. >> julian, thanks for that. always good to see you. julian kelly joining us from barclays. which country is more corrupt and

the swiss franc. let's show where you we stand with oil prices right now. we've got nymex trading at 89. present at 110. both of them fairly steady. what about the outlook? joining us is peter hunt at rbc. peter, good morning to you. so does oil stay in this sort of recent ranges for the foreseeable future? >> actually we think it is. it sounds like sort of the risk of complacency. something we challenge ourselves on quite regularly. but given the points about china demand and global gdp, we're still very cautious in terms of demand, but the issue for the oil markets is supply and there are still big movements going on there. i think over the last three months, you've seen a really sharp fall in the output from iran. that's down below 3 million barrels a day for the first type since at least 2000. a lot of those volumes have been physically made by increases in iraq. but while they can make up the volume, they don't make up for the sense of instability. and i think as long as you have iran producing around a million down from a high of 4 billion only in 2008 and still needs to generate
